When it was clear that the existing teaching areas at Niederhasli Primary School were no longer sufficient to meet the needs of the future, the school commissioned an extension to the building. As a lighting solution partner, RIBAG provided the best visual and perceptual conditions.
The architect’s office of Graser Architekten AG from Zurich blended the external look and design of the extension to fit in with the existing structure. The internal space could be adapted to suit the school’s needs by using sliding walls, which meant there were no supporting elements to restrict the layout of the room inside. The use of the open area was enhanced with the appropriate lighting. Thanks to the freely arranged PUNTO mounted lamps of different sizes, both the pupils and the teachers now come together in a bright and friendly setting.
